Under Michigan law, can a munincipality, without formal
Under Michigan law, can a munincipality, without formal permission by the owner of vacant property (5 acres), utilize the land for storing of city owned stone aggregate, asphalt millings, concrete sewer piping, sludge, etc. This occurred approximately 3 months ago and they did so by referring to an informal agreement, circa the year 2000, where the property owner entertained the idea of gifting the 5 acres to the city, but the property transfer never was executed. Supposedly, the owner at that time could not clear title for the property for an unknown reason and the gifting never took place. During the past several years, the relationship has become strained between the land owner and the city and the owner is not willing to enter into any such benovolent gifting agreement, but told the city representation that they would entertain a paid for lease agreement for the use of the property. The city is not willing to pay for a lease agreement and when they were informed by the owner that $2000 per month for the 3 months of usage of the property and until such time that the material was totallly removed from the site, they have refused because they are of the belief that because the owner once , several years ago, was willing to gift the property. The city is taking the position that the informal agreement, which was never executed, is the permission that they needed to use the property and do not need to pay anything for past use and intend to remove all of the materials from the site when they are able to do (no time frame given). In this instance, can the City claim adverse possession or squatter's rights to take over ownerhip of the property? Also, can the owner have legal standing in requiring the city to pay the asked for rental on the property for the amount of time they have used the property for their storage? NOTE: When the city declared a disinterest in entering into a lease agreement, they were informed by the owner that the gate to the site had been padlocked and the immediate area was signed as no trespassing. I apologize for the length of the question to you, but in order for you to fully understand the situation, I had to give you the whole story. Thank you.

We have lived at our address for 20yrs and have had an existing drive to our home. We r landlocked so it is across the edge of neighbors land. It was here before we moved here and before the current landowner but thete is no easement recorded. He never liked it but never did anything. Now all of a sudden he is putting steel poles across our drive. Took a tractor and was making speed bumps in drive with the gravel we pay for. We have always maintained it. He doesn't use it. My husband got charfed with disorderly conduct for arguing and cussing when the law took his side. We need a legal easement but I don't know how.

Hello, I have a roommate in my apartment who is classified as a subtenant because he is not on the lease and pays me rent every month. I told him today that my other roommate and I have been talking and wanted to ask him to leave in thirty days. He claims that he has squatters rights and that I have no legal way to evict him from the property. He's only been living on the property for 5 months. I was wondering how accurate he is in me not being able to go to court after he neglects a thirty day notice given to him
I purchased 150 x 140 property in a small town in North
I purchased 150 x 140 property in a small town in North Dakota 2 years ago. I just had it surveyed last month. The neighbors garage is 10 ft., (he didn't have a survey done when he built the garage), onto my property. (The surveyor did the survey 3 times to make sure he was right.) I offered to sell the 10 feet to my neighbor but he says he's grandfathered in and can continue to use my property. I thought as a new property owner if I bought 150 x140 and it was registered at the court house as such, that I owned that much. Can you tell me if I have any right to my 10 feet or do I have to give it to him?Thank you, ***** ***** of North Dakota
I have been taking care of my neighbor's vacant lot adjacent
I have been taking care of my neighbor's vacant lot adjacent to my property (cutting lawn, trimming trees spring and fall clean-up etc...). Since my land has no parking, we have been using this area for guest parking without dispute since 1987. They have recently put up boundary's so that we cannot park on their property because they are upset due to several Summer parties this year where noise was load and many cars were packed into both of our properties. They stated that they were "Taking Back" their property. Do I have any recourse - I live in Massachusetts...?
I had a question about squatter's rights in (particularly
Hello,I had a question about squatter's rights in Virginia (particularly Fairfax county). I have been living at an apartment for 2 years and 3 months. My friend was the tenant and I paid rent / utility monthly during this time. He recently passed away after extended illness and his sister (who has power of attorney and lives in TX) wants me out of the unit ASAP. The property manager had mentioned to her that I could stay 7 days. Do I have any legal recourse in this instance to stay a few more weeks while I hunt for a new place to live? I have been paying the utilities so that is all current and up to date.Thanks for your time.Jessica W
